Dr. Lawrence Johnson, Chair of the Department of Music at SUU, states, “The SUU Department of Music always looks forward to our annual Soirée Faculty Recital where our exceptional faculty and accompanist have the opportunity to share their talents and expertise with the university and the community. It is our audiences, after all, for whom we perform, and for whose support and encouragement we are very grateful. Therefore, we view this recital as our ‘thank you’ to all those who support the university music program, and also support this magical and transformative art we call music!”

The esteemed faculty of SUU’s Music Department provides an exceptional combination of both teaching and performing expertise. Their experience in music has provided students with the training and professionalism to win state, regional, and national recognition for their efforts, both while attending SUU and after graduation. Many of the students who have studied under our faculty have gone on to teach music or pursue professional performance careers.
